Myth...I see the constant drum beat that Euro cars are worth more but not one single example with actual sales data with apples to apples comparison with respect to year/condition/etc.

Great now I'm self conscious about my low grade pot metal fuel head.

Isn't the real difference those nasty thermal headers some of the us models came with

HHAHA thats because EURO owners keep their cars!!

IF i had a Slow Heavy US Car id sell it too!
(i shouldnt say that out loud cos this is an American site )

AND

compare the specs

A US 3.3 930 only has 18hp more than a 3.0 930 and with all that weight theyre slower , right up until 1989

Euro 930 3.0 1977 car = 260hp weight= 1210kg

US 930 3.3 1989 12 years later = 272-278hp weight =more

Thats why performance is the same even 12 years later

But a 3.3 Euro has 300hp





thats why the op is doing the sensible thing and upgrading his US to A Euro ,

How about an underbody shot Tony??
And lets see the suspension
I can see he will be selling that and using the pelican portal to hype it up a bit.


But where did you get that info from?
got a link?
id like to see if and Euro cars were sold recently (pre78) to the Euro Market and for how much they went for?

If a US 930 sells foe $100k in Europa
Then a Euro would sell for $200k

But thats just my never wrong opinion

The conversion would definitely be a lot of buck for very little bang, but it just boils down to personal preference.
The OP states the car is in Norway, So my guess is the conversion was done to meet European spec. for registration.

ficke, good point, but I was actually just speaking in general terms about why some people do the conversion, but you are right about the import standards of other countries (I read about that all the time in the 911 forum).

At least now we know why you describe your car as being a dog off the line - it's not operator error at all, but the fact that you have that 2nd rate, Eurotrash, fuel head!

Robby, I think your signature should simply be a pic of bungee cords, zip ties, tubes of JB weld, and vinyl wrap clippings in a pile on your garage floor!

I'm thinking of turning it to a parts car. Between the non welcome foriegn fuel head and the non original muffler its not really worth driving.

Honestly I think the viper green car looks fantastic. I would not want to be the guy that had to cut the hole for the euro side markers

I would think original would trump conversions of any type, even Euro. Personally I much prefer the Euro spec 930 post 1979. There is a LOT more to change than a fuel head and ride height.

Where do you source your fuel to run a euro-spec 930 since 91 Octane gasoline won't work(on a truly spec'ed 930 euro-motor)?

In probably half the states of the US(which require smog or inspections), how do you get around trying to get an non-DOT/non-EPA car to conform to US reg's?

What would be the entire cost to take a US 930...and completely make it a euro "spec" 930? That sounds prohibitively expensive to go backwards.

Would anyone seriously consider a re-worked US 930 as a genuine euro-930? Maybe to the person doing the conversion and keeping it, but in the market place for sale, it may not be considered genuine(as it didn't leave the factory that way). I believe the VINS would be a dead-giveaway.

Euro 3.0 versus US 3.3L...how much more torque does that 3.3L have?

Those aren't hemorrhoids - they're double D bumper tits! And DD are ALWAYS better (when real, that is) than AA (aka Euro)!

What year is this 930? Original color, or color change?
